It’s August 1895 in London when Abigail and Daniel are called in to determine who bludgeoned an iguanodon dinosaur fossil. The remains were found with a cryptic note, “Because of he that betrayeth”. But the next morning, a man is found strangled in the same location with another note around his neck, “The price of treason”. Now, Abigail and Daniel must solve both vandalism and a Murder at the Natural History Museum.
I adored the use of real historic personages as suspects. And who knew Bram Stoker was red-haired! Oscar Wilde’s trial and conviction, for what was considered indecent behavior at the time, is a prominent part of the book. The tight one-hour timeframe for the murder and the numerous red herrings make the Murder at the Natural History Museum a perfect case for armchair detectives. It’s a jolly good time! 4 stars!
Thanks to Allison & Busby and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
